What is Kamili Yoga™?

Kamili Yoga™ is a modern Pan-African system for Black holistic wellness. From the African Swahili word for “complete” and the Indian Sanskrit word for “union,” Kamili Yoga™ is born of the necessity for more systems of Yoga that center Black wellness in a holistic way. Kamili Yoga™ consists of three structured core tenets, each of which is rooted in the exploration of Pan-African traditions and peoples, from the African ancestors spread across the Motherland to the Black descendants dispersed around the world.

Kamili Yoga™ is an answer to numerous needs. The need for more culturally diverse Yoga systems. The need for more Yoga systems that de-center Whiteness. And the need for more Yoga systems that celebrate the beautiful depths of Black and African being.

The Kamili Affirmation

My body bears strength, solid and firm
I am earth
My heart burns pure, a passionate flame
I am fire
My mind flows calmly, open and clear
I am water
My spirit breathes gently, a sacred breath
I am air
My being is empty of ego, yet encompasses all
I am space

My soul is a reflection of all existence
I am life
And I am complete
